Military overcoat

This military overcoat is one of my favorite pieces from my wardrobe. The fabric is heavy and has a velvety-like texture to it, it’s such a luxe piece. This coat doesn’t see the outside of my closet too often because it’s never cold enough to wear it. These past few weeks have been chilly though so I decided it was time to take it for a walk. I love the subtle details of this coat. This is one of those investment pieces that I never get tired of seeing. There are so many cool military overcoats out there, it’s hard to choose from all the different styles. The navy color and the subdued details drew me to this particular one because it’s simple enough to wear over any outfit but it still has some texture and cool details.

CUT OUT ANKLE BOOTS

BOOTIES-5 BOOTIES-6 BOOTIES-3 BOOTIES-1 BOOTIES-4 BOOTIES-7These black cross strap cut out ankle boots by BCBGMAXAZRIA are perfection. Ankle boots or ankle booties, whatever you call them, in my opinion, are a closet staple. There are so many ways to wear them. Today I’m wearing mine with black coated skinny jeans. I love a great black pointed-toe boot. When paired with black pants, this style of boots will help elongate the legs and make you appear taller and slimmer.

Personally, I’ve never owned a cutout ankle boot before, I’d always opt for a regular black leather ankle bootie. However, this time around, I haven’t been able to find ankle boots that I like so I broadened my search and found these beauties. The cross strap and cut out design make them stand out and give them an edgy vibe. From the front, they appear to fully cover the foot which makes them great for pairing with pants. Conversely, the cut out sides give them the appearance of pumps, making them easy to pair with dresses and skirts. It’s a wonderfully versatile boot.

Ankle boots can sometimes make the legs appear shorter. Sometimes you have to be careful how you style them based on your height and silhouette.

This leather purse is perfect for toting around everyday. The side pockets are ideal for keeping your cell phone and keys easily accessible, and the color goes with just about everything. Saffiano leather has a crosshatch pattern that makes is easy to identify. This type of leather is easy to clean, most liquids just glide right off. I’m loving this new tote, it’s pairs very well with a casual look and equally with a sophisticated one.
